Full description

The Venice Carnival is a great event that attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year. To fully experience it we advise you to take part in the 'Carnival Mystery Dinner'! Saturday 23 February 2019, the Hotel Gabrielli - in collaboration with the artisan mask workshop Ca 'Macana' – invites you into its splendid halls: put on a historical costume or an evening dress and get ready to live an evening full of fun, mystery and good food!

The cost of the ticket includes a handmade mask provided by Ca 'Macana, one of the most prestigious artisan workshops in Venice, where the masks are still made strictly by hand, according to tradition without the use of any machinery.

As this is a wonderful location, it is worth spending a few words on it. A few minutes from St Mark’s Square, the Hotel Gabrielli directly overlooks Riva degli Schiavoni: its terrace offers, in fact, breathtaking views over the roofs of the city and the entire lagoon. Also noteworthy is the interior of this ancient palace: the ornate ceiling, the marble decorations and the large Murano glass chandeliers, make the atmosphere in the rooms elegant and classy.

But let's get back on track and hear how the 'Carnival Mystery Dinner' will unfold:

  • At 18.30 the video mapping program will be presented, with an original display on the splendid facade of the Hotel Gabrielli. At the end, you will be escorted to the main floor where you will find the official presenter waiting for you, who will start this extraordinary evening.

  • At 19.00 we will start with a welcome cocktail - Prosecco, the classic spritz, green spritz P31, Bellini and a non-alcoholic fruit drink - accompanied by classic Venetian 'ciccheti' served by passing waiters. Aperitif, music and entertainment will start to warm up the atmosphere to accompany the guests towards an unforgettable experience!
  • At 20.00, in the elegant restaurant of the hotel, a three-course dinner will be served: prawn tartare on rice cream and ginger croquettes, risotto with scallops and pumpkin and porcini mushrooms and grilled yellowtail filet cooked with smoked lemon, broccoli and potatoes.
    In between the courses you will watch performances by international artists and the evocative narrations on the theme of mystery and magic that imbues the two wells in the court of Palazzo Gabrielli. Dancers, jugglers and fortune tellers will charm and entice guests to lead them on tiptoes into their fantastic world.

  • After this, dessert will be served around 11.00 pm: a buffet of typical carnival cakes, tiramisu and fresh fruit awaits you. The evening will end around 23.30.


Celebrate with us the Venice Carnival of 2019: we will wait for you on Saturday 23rd February at the Hotel Gabrielli to spend an unforgettable evening of magic and fun!
